Yes, I've already tested and used it, very nice feature, but a little too much for my actual needs.


Indeed i always planned to build something "in between" like a 4 colour 1024x768 mode. But I never finished that.

Re: The last MIST

Today I read this... and I am now sad. I hope you will reconsider and this isn't the end of MIST. It's great that you bought a real MIST! This isn't a "decision". It's just that the MIST doesn't sell anymore (agreed, you obviously bought one :D ). So Lotharek has plenty of them in stock s...

Re: The last MIST

MiSTer is modular platform which is easy to integrate into some existing cases thanks to its small dimensions. I'm working on integrating it into pi-top case. Since pi-top display accept any refresh rate, it's possible to output HDMI with original retro refresh rate and have butter smooth scrollers...

Re: The last MIST

Hoping in a future MiST2 platform. For me a MIST2 has one huge technical question mark: I am pretty sure you all agree that a MIST2 would need HDMI more than anything else. Setting all the licensing issues etc aside that would arrive with the use of HDMI i still have a very fundamental problem with...

Re: The last MIST

Maybe some of you misunderstood me. Just the genuine MIST will not be produced any more. And that has nothing to do with open source. It costs money to produce these and you need to sell them to get your money back. Nowadays there are cheaper solutions. These solutions still exist. The clone boards ...

Hi, i am sad to announce that we'll likely stop producing MISTs. Let me explain why this happens. This is not going to be a complaint but simply a description what happened.

Re: Mist Amiga Display

The (or one) problem with modern TVs is that they need to do some heavy processing on those ancient video signals to scale them nicely.

Re: USB Controllers - Why do so many not work? can we help

I shouldn't make a difference which port you use and how man other devices are connected. But it doesn't hurt to check if e.g. unplugging any of the other devices solves your problem. It seems you _have_ some problem and we need to figure out where it originates from. And i haven't tested the firmwa...

Re: USB missing power when using DC jack?

There should be no difference. Actually the main MIST board i use for development is equipped with a DC jack _and_ uses a rapoo keyboard.

I also don't think the USB chip is damaged or the like. It would then not work at all anymore. I'd also expect the power source to be the problem.

Re: Sega megadrive/genesis core

With the initial port of the fpgagen to the MIST there's now definitely the need for a decent sound implementation for it.

Parsing all the complex possible keyboard types that exist in the USB world is difficult. Fortunately all keyboards support a so called boot mode.

Re: Mattel Aquarius - how easy to port this core?

I just had a look at the archive from that other thread. It shouldn't be too hard to port this to the mist. One would have to replace the TSK80 CPU (which is a closed source z80 cpu core from altium) with e.g. the t80 core. The MISTs FPGAs internal RAM is sufficient for the whole machine, so no exte...
